THE GROWING PHENOMENON OF INTERNETS

By 12.04.09

Here’s an awesome CBC news report from the late 80’s or early 90’s on “the growing phenomenon of internet”, including astute quotes like this:

John Allen says it’s a modulated anarchy. 

“There’s an interesting kind of restraint that you find.  I mean, there’s not a lot of cursing or swearing.  There’s not a lot of personal cuts.  There’s not a lot of put downs that one would expect to find.  There’s not screenfulls of ‘Go to hell.’ it’s just surprising.” [Ohhaveyouseenthis]

Watch as the helmet-haired anchor tries to explain emoticons in his fake anchor voice.  Ah, some things never change.  P.S. Go to hell, John.  Your face is stupid.  DIAF.
